I recall buying some random buffers from BMW, some were the round black dots, but one was like a small square bar.

Anything stuck in the arch that it's catching? You can run very low and wide tyres on these cars and not catch due to the camber/toe curve. Also check the rear bushes, but the car would drive really...

Just started to listening to it now, but IMO, the...

I originally bought one against realoem and it turned out to be too short (5pk785). Think this is for cars WITHOUT aircon but with the airpump!

Well worth looking at strengthening the trailing arm tabs too, they are very weak/bendy stock and it's known for the H&R bars to eventually snap then.

Not so keen on the chrome additions though :)
